TAAI & Air India Meeting Yield Results

TAAI & Air India Meeting Yield Results

We are happy that Air India agreed to the proposal from TAAI, after our recent meeting, that they must remunerate ALL IATA agencies irrespective of their size, for the sale of all Domestic & International Passages.

Our emphasis was to connect Air India with more IATA agencies in India and have them ticket directly. What’s the point that our National Carrier is not actively sold directly by a large percentage of IATA agencies in India?

Currently most agencies are compelled to pick up tickets from an intermediary and not an Airline and the current initiative by Air India will be of great significance to change this trend.

This decision by Air India is reflective of the National Airline’s prominence in India, which is so important for every Airline in its own country.

The additional 2 percent to every IATA agency without any target is an excellent move to offer Air India, the “market leadership” in India. In most countries of the world, the national carrier has a huge prominence and there’s great loyalty exhibited from the Travel Agencies and passengers.

This move can be a game-changer and offer to Air India an opportunity to win over the market. We appreciate and acknowledge this initiative from Air India and thank them to have considered this proposal from TAAI.

TAAI is delighted to be doing this for our members and for Air India.
